Merry Monday #40

It’s another Merry Monday! 🙂  This card is for Merry Monday # 40.  I had no idea when I started with this challenge last January, that I would still be making Christmas cards.  Here it is November and I have all my cards done, with extras 🙂 !

Here is the sketch for this week:

I know, it looks simple, but the simple ones are sometimes the hardest;)  Here is my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

Wow, did I have a hard time taking a photo of this card!  I have to say the photo just doesn’t do it justice:(  This card is sparkly and bright!  I will add another photo at the end.  This card is all Stampin’ Up!

I used Basic Black for the back and added Silver Glimmer Paper on top of that.  The dots are a clear acetate with black dots from Specialty paper Night and Day (retired). I then layered some Whisper White Organza Ribbon and made a bow.  Lastly, I added my sentiment from The Sounding Joy.

I’ve made quite a few B&W cards this year.  I think they are so elegant, I hope you agree:)

Here’s another look:

I just can’t make my photos show how truly sparkly and beautiful this card really is:(

Head over to Merry Monday for this and other wonderful cards!   There’s still time to join the fun! 🙂

Thanks for coming by today, have a great weekend! 🙂
